FAQ & DISCLAIMER

About Me

My name is Sophia, and I am in my early 30s. I am from Singapore and I am the sole writer of this blog.

About this Blog

I started this blog in 2006, I like to use a wide range of brands though I seem to have a growing preference for higher-end brands in recent years. I also like to share interesting things I have come across about makeup and beauty.

Currently The Makeup Blogette receives 39,000 unique views monthly or 2,238,932 views and counting.

My Makeup Style

I like classic looks (neutral tones on eyes, anything goes for lips & cheeks), though occasionally I try out dramatic/ statement looks.  I believe that a flawless base is the key to achieving great makeup looks.  I also believe that if you don't have great skin to start with, fake it with a good foundation routine, and even greater skincare.  I am currently loving Clarins & Lancome skincare products, and Vichy NormaDerm for tackling with breakouts.

What Cameras do I use?

Most of the pictures you see in post 2010 entries are taken with my Canon G-11.  Previously I was using Canon Ixus 80.  I do post some pictures which are taken with my iphone4 which I will state in that particular entry.  I have stopped watermarking my pictures as of 2011, because I think watermarks are ugly in general, and does not prevent people from stealing my pictures if they wish to.  I just take it as a compliment that my pictures are even worth stealing in the first place. I might look into getting a Canon EOS next year, not just for blogging purposes, but I also like photography in general.

My Favourite Makeup Brand(s)

It is hard to name just one, but I like NARS, Chanel, Illamasqua and the ocasional Guerlain, Dior & Urban Decay item.  I own quite a stash of MAC items, but recently I have stopped catching up with their collections, and I much prefer to splurge on a few really outstanding items.

Where to find me

Twitter (link button above!)  Email (stated above!)  Instagram (makeup_blogette)

I have no official Facebook fan page, and currently have no intention to start one at all.  The Makeup Blogette remains my personal hobby and property, so as such, I don't believe in having a Facebook fanpage for it.

Final Disclaimer

I bought/ paid for all of the products mentioned in this blog. I am not affliated to any company. If certain products are sent to me for review purposes, I will say so and express my honest opinions about them. In any case, I will only review and showcase the products which I have personally tried and tested, and enjoy using. I do not get paid to review anything.

No ads, no paid links etc please.  I am in charge of all content and pictures here.

I am not a makeup artist, nor do I have any professional training in makeup.

    Burberry Prorsum Womenswear SS2013 Show & Makeup

    London, 17 September 2012

    CELEBRATING LONDON THROUGH THREE SIMULTANEOUS & CONNECTED LIVE SHOWS


    Burberry invited the world to celebrate London today, through three simultaneous live shows, blurring the physical and digital to bring the event from the runway in Hyde Park, to the new Regent Street flagship, to the world. 

    The Physical Experience: Live From Hyde Park

    Over 1500 guests attended the Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2013 Womenswear show at the brand’s custom-built show venue in London’s Hyde Park, including from the creative industries Sir Jonathan Ive, Thomas Heatherwick, Harvey Weinstein, Mario Testino, Anna Wintour, Samantha Cameron and Secretary of State for Culture Maria Miller.

    Watch behind the scenes here

     

    The Digital Experience: Live From Burberry World

    Burberry World (Burberry.com) brought all facets of the live show to a global audience through its most personalised cross channel viewing experience to date. 

    Mobile users were able to explore the show, its on demand version and the collection in more detail than ever before. 

    Blurring The Physical And Digital: Live From Burberry Regent Street

    The show was also streamed simultaneously onto the tallest retail screen in the world at Burberry Regent Street, where over 500 guests were welcomed personally to the store's first live event by a video message from Christopher Bailey.

    Burberry Regent Street blurs the physical and the digital to create the brand’s most digitally-advanced brand experience, bringing to life every aspect of Burberry World.

    All three show experiences were linked via a social stream, integrating real time content from the London events,Twitter and Instagram. 

    RUNWAY TO REALITY IN JUST EIGHT WEEKS

    The Spring Summer 2013 collection is available for purchase on Burberry.com for one week bringing the collection to the consumer globally in just 8 weeks through the brands Runway to Reality initiative.

    BRITISH SOUNDTRACK

    Featuring British emerging musicians Ren Harvieu, Tom Odell and Birdy the show soundtrack was streamed directly from the show space across all platforms as part of the mobile and online show experience.

    Let's end this entry with the show invite. 


    I have always like following the various fashion weeks, and with YouTube and all, it is very easy to catch up with the current shows a mere matter of hours after the show ended.  And with twitter and instagram, I sometimes feel like I am in London or NYC too.  Most of all, I like to see what new trends are emerging, and also pay attention to the upcoming beauty trends.   Hope you enjoy this Burberry coverage, because I certainly enjoyed watching the videos, and also finding out about the backstage information and all. :)

     

    Thanks for reading!
